Alice in Wonderland inspired pop-up event: Immersive food experience, “Curious Encounters”

“Curious Encounters”

“But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.

"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."

Let’s all get a little mad for a day.
Take an immersive trip down a “rabbit hole” at this Alice in Wonderland-based pop-up experience created by ProДukt (formerly Russian Revels) within the framework of the exhibition, Geometry of Nonsense.
You can expect a fanciful setting, eccentric encounters, unexpected nibbles.
You will have a seat at a Wonderland table to enjoy your bizarre meal…
Your experience will be much more “MUCHIER” than you imagined.
After all, anything can happen in Wonderland... Are you not a little bit curious?

A Canapé reception with a welcome drink and an experiential
dinner with a few surprises. Red and white 'potion' will be served with a meal...

Menu to include:

* Mock Turtle Soup (V)

* “Down the Rabbit Hole” 
(Confiletas filled with “magic mushroom julienne” on a “green meadow")

* Wonderland “curious” Parcel
Slow cooked beef and barley casserole served in a surprise package

And to finish off a little surprise from the Mad Hatter….

Attire: wherever imagination takes you...

Who is behind Russian Revels:

Russian Revels are a duo of Karina Baldry, a Muscovite by birth and an author of ‘Russia on a Plate’, and Katrina Kollegaeva, a Food Anthropologist and a blogger with roots in Soviet Estonia. In January 2012 they joined forces with a modest aim to revolutionise the image of Eastern-European food, determined to show that Russian food can be light, luscious and chic.
